    I have a curtis 3000 pro, went to move the plow for the spring, hooked up and all the controls did were click in every direction. The foot switch did nothing. What would be the best place to start troubleshooting. I'm thinking coroded wires, ground?

    When you say it clicked, the relay, or solenoid clicked and the motor did not run? Make shur the plugs are clean and no pins are rotted off.

    The pins inside the connectors.
    Ck for power on the output side of the solenoid, then at the motor. Don't forget to Ck the grounds

    Is this an old single plug or the updated two plug. The grounds on the older ones had a tendency to come loose in the A frames. If its an older touch pad they go bad also.
